| a slap in the face...
Through this movie we manage to see, in the raw and sincere form, all the sore spots that help to compose the current Brazilian view of our stated society. The best itinerary and great acting help to give to the movie more realism, making it nearer of us, it does so that we feel sad and bothered. It shows that we need to know more the country in which we cheer and which the contact with other, it is he of any social class, it is necessary so that we become more human and more conscious of our situation like Brazilians.

The director got, with his intriguing history and using of extremely valid flashbacks resulting from the history, like still we live in a late and selfish time.

A great Brazilian movie that needs to be more accepted and spread!
